Well, this is quite bizarre so I thought I share with yall.
I stopped to get gas by the interstate this weekend on the way back from a long road trip. Filled up with my Discover card (5%), took the receipt printout without looking at it and stuff the receipt into my wallet.
So when I sit down to record the receipt (somehow Discover didn’t text me) I noticed that the amount is much higher. I check the amount and it’s like 23+ gallons. My gas tank isn’t even that big. At this point, I panicked a bit. Jumped on Discover site and see that the transaction is still show as “pending” with no amount shown. I check the receipt again and it’s showing the card is a Visa.
Ok, wtf, did I grab the receipt from the car before? I decided to sleep on it and check Discover again today. and… the pending transaction is gone, just gone.
So, I’m not 100% certain yet but it seems my gas ended on the card of the person who filled up prior to me. Even though my card was accepted and pending transaction shown.
